Very flat and straight 3.1 mile each way paved trail. No shade. Follows train tracks alongside Ballston Lake. Parking lot just past trail head at north end.
This is my go to bike trail. So peaceful and relaxing.
Beautiful day to go for a ride. It was nice to see so many people out.
We started at the Hudson end. All cinders in Columbia County. This part is flat and the cinders bake hard once weather warms. Great views of falls land pastoral land. The Rensselaer county half is paved and has several hilly portions. The portions through the villages and hamlets include passing the remaining trolley stations. The shared road portions are ok and ample shoulders or light traffic streets are used.
I rode from Nassau to Rensselaer today on the trail. Best place to park is at the town common. Tables/pavilion no porta potties.
10 Fairground St or 7 John Street good addresses to use.
Ice Cream spot right on trail and Cumberland and pizza nearby.
Trail in great condition except one bad street.. Large parking lot at Nassau Lake
Long up and downhills about for several miles, not bad unless there is winding
Well signed and many ped/bike crossing lights
After crossing I90, Dunkin / gas ad General Store.
The trail through neighborhoods on roads are quiet.
At about Miles 10,5 & 6. Stewarts Store ad gas stations right off trail for food
Trail ends on a street in East Greenbush, You can follow the on road signs all the way to Rensselaer (some long downhills)
I do a lot of running and road biking. This trail is great for both. Rolling hill, scenic, great for distant ride/runs. Construction of the trail was completed Fall of 2020. By far my favorite trail in the capital region
First off — skip the northern part of the trail from the Hampton Manor Lake area if you are a biker — and start your trip at Miller Road (just of interstate 90). You will be greeted by a babbling brooks, rolling hills, and the smell of farms. As you head south through Nassau Lake you will have opportunities for food and drinks. This is a fun ride.
This trail is great. There are paved stretches (from East Greenbush to Nassau) with mostly unpaved from Chatham to Hudson (with short stretches of paved in that area). My favorite part is the Nassau area.
I congratulate all who were involved in developing this magnificent route. I rode it from Albany to Voorheesville and back. The way to Voorheesville is 9 miles of gentle up-hill grade until final few miles, which makes the return trip to Albany mostly a gentle downhill ride. This is "rail trail" at it's best!
I live this trail, especially the section from Miller Rd in Schodack to the columbia county line. It's nicely paved a few hills, but mostly flat from Nassau south. Looking forward to riding further into columbia county this year.
I enjoyed biking the trail. I was only able to do areas that construction was completed and the road sections. I used a road bike on the stone dust and did not have a problem. The spots I rode were recently completed and I wonder how the stone dust will fair over the winter. around the Kinderhook area there was a good portion available. Lots of walkers the morning I rode it. I am planning on purchasing a gravel bike with a little wider tires and this will be one of my first rides this summer. I will start in the middle and hopefully make it to both ends the same ride. I want to include both of the train stations in the video even though they are a quarter of a mile from the official endpoints.
I hope to do the complete trail and record sections with a Go Pro in June '21. It will be round trip ride, so it will be double the trail length of 35 miles.
New off road section was created along Broadway in Albany after coming out of the tunnel. Watch for the signs for the Empire Trail also
